[cheers and applause] >> well, mr. speaker, thank you very much for that very warm welcome. and i suppose it's really to follow that. there have been a recount, so i think we need to move on and think about what this debate has achieved for everybody here, including myself, and my other colleagues who have taken the opportunity to hear and listen to much of the fantastic and excellen
written by edward cline, who is our guest on booktv on c-span2. where did you get the title for this book. >> it came from a meeting that bill clinton had in chappaqua new york, north of york city where he has a home. this is back in august 2001. he invited several gas and it showed that he wanted to challenge the president and she is surprised by all this. and she said though, how can i do this, and the secretary of state. i have the ones with the miniver thursday. what about loyalty? and he said, there is no such word as loyalty in politics. he then went on to say that the people. the aaa credit rating of the united states, the barack obama was, in his words, an amateur. i spoke to people at that meeting. when i heard that, i said, that's the perfect title for this book, "the amateur." >> president clinton has denied publicly that he has used that term. >> i will tell you an interesting story. he has denied it, but hillary has told his friends that she suspected that of all people, chelsea had told me about this. now, that's not true. i've never met chelsea clinton. but apparently she h
. i think both of you. ms. edwards. >> thank you, mr. chairman. i want to thank all of our witnesses today and particularly thank secretary lahood. i understand it's your birthday. i don't think i would've chosen to spend my birthday with you, but i'm glad you've chosen to spend your birthday with us. particularly to the chairman for holding this hearing and discussion today about high-speed rail. we had a chance to begin a half ago to go up to new york and less amtrak, but it just took forever. i do share your view and that of ms. norton that we have a really densely populated corridor in the north east that requires her best development of high-speed rail. i don't think that has to be, nor should it be at the exclusion of development of high-speed rail and other quarters of the country. when i think about a trip that i took many years ago with my son from paris to the dirt on your region in france going from a densely populated urban area to a rural and mountainous region and high-speed railways and excluded the mayor. so i think the same can be true of areas around the central coa
as an important person. and that is edward meese. he was first an adviser and attorney general. he said there has been a liberal agenda. above all, roe versus wade banned abortion. a big part of the reagan revolution. there was a lawyer who wanted work on behalf of that agenda. john roberts and samuel alito. 1985 in a memo. justice alito wrote what can be made of this opportunity to advance and bring about the eventual overruling of roe versus wade. later that year, apply for a promotion he wrote i'm particularly proud of my contribution. .. so reagan's people went all the way to the intermediate appeals court in arizona. not even the arizona supreme court to find a remarkable figure who buys and a sandra day o'connor. sandra day o'connor is not a social conservative for a religious conservative or anything like the kind of conservatives that dominate the republican party now and that was fine with ronald reagan. he didn't care. it wasn't his agenda either and he's very proud of this nomination of o'connor. 1996, chief justice burger stepped down. reagan elevated rehnquist as chief justice, named
